Milwaukee Public Museum shares 1st look at 'Living in a Dynamic World' exhibit

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Public Museum continues to share sneak peeks of what's to come at its future museum.

On Tuesday, it released sketches of "Living in a Dynamic World," the fourth of five permanent galleries released ahead of the museum's opening in late 2026. 

 It features five different landscapes -- deserts, the Arctic, islands, grasslands and mountains -- so visitors can explore how plants, animals and humans all interact and adapt. 

“Living in a Dynamic World will take a deep, thoughtful look at the ways humans and other species have interacted with, adapted to and shaped each featured landscape, examining both the present and past,” said MPM President & CEO Dr. Ellen Censky. “The exhibits and cultures highlighted in Living in a Dynamic World were chosen with our vast collections in mind, and we’ll be showcasing both familiar and never-before-seen items in the context of cultural stories, which are being developed in consultation with origin communities.”

There will also be plenty of ways to interact with the exhibits using both your sense of sight, touch and even smell. 

For longtime fans, some old favorites will make the move to this permanent gallery, like the rattlesnake button.
